Shifting problems 6 cylinder tribute
By Sandra Paris on
2010 Mazda Tribute s Grand Touring 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 6A)
Previously had a 2003 & 2005 - 6 cyl Tribute and this new one is doing strange things in down shifting at different speeds and jerking. Met with Mazda Guru and he said this is normal and because of computer and some other tech language, I have to settle for this, but driving the car you can feel the down shifting at 40 mph to 20 mph and then it jerks at different speeds. The gas mileage is terrible and yes I also feel the poor design of the back up camera, messy looking install. Black interior attracts to much dust, the shine is nice looking, but not practical, would Rather have dull interior. The wind noise from front side mirrors is just as bad as before. They know, and working on it.
Look into the horrible wind noise coming from the remote mirrors. I had this in previous tributes, this is just as bad. All they say, is they are working on it, big deal, the engineers get great $$, where are their brains and ears. Come on guys, get your act together, no more tributes for me.
